This place is really nicely decorated! It has very pretty, colourful patterns, all over the walls :-) We had the Ottoman Feast, which is essentially the set menu. It gives you a taste of a half dozen different mezzes, and a main and dessert. The mezzes were tasty and plentiful, almost a meal in themselves. I particularly enjoyed the Tabbouleh.... More

Went here after staying over one evening in the area and it was a lovely dining experience. Starters were tasty. I had the lamb steak main and my fiance the lamb shank and both were delicious. The service is good without being overbearing. Would highly recommend for any sized group/family or couples.

Staying across the road we came here for a meal to celebrate my husband's birthday prior to heading to King's Cross for train home in the early evening. Arrived at 5.30 and were out by 6.30 having starters and mains, 2 glasses of wine and a beer. We had complimentary fruit and almond and mint liquers to toast my husband's... More

Had heard a lot about this restaurant, that it was busy and had fantistic chefs. Was in London so I and my sister went. From the outside this restaurant needs a decent sign. When walking in you walk in to carpet hate it old fashion rubbish. The waiter wasn't even dressed proply so sat down and didn't order mains or... More

We had a room off the main restaurant for your group. There were meze to start - these were tasty. The main course was ok, but nothing special. I had stuffed chicken with rice, but the stuffing was rather bland. The house wine was acceptable, and we had free fruit offered at the end. I might try somewhere else for... More

Went last night with my wife as she was looking specifically for Turkish cosine, we were in London for only one night , and I had couple of hours to spare for this meal. But seems to be that you need to wait for 30 min to get someone who can take your order and then an extra hour to... More

Gauher, Manager at Antalya, responded to this review

Hi TripAdvisor, once again I am writing with respect to this review and frankly disappointed that people have the audacity to lie and fabricate with regards to how they have been untreated. It is absolutely untrue that any customer has to wait 30 minutes before they are served. In addition, to wait for a main for 1 hour is totally... More

We chose this restaurant based on tripadvisor reviews but it did not live up to them at all. Tow of the four starters we ordered were "finished" and rather than offering us the choice to re-select we were just brought a plate of plain halloumi and told it was free. Well, that wasn't terrible but it wasn't what we were... More

I choose one of the house specialties... Fat, a heavy sauce not very delicate as the make "the sultan's favorite" had made me expect. The wine was equally boring. Trip advisor ranking undeserved
